Sessions - Wikis

Session led by Tom Edwards, Andrew Hiskens and Dianne Clifford

Session began with a overview of the wiki Dianne had set up in her school library. Designed to be used internally by staff; she went through the process of setting up a wiki using open source software

A general discussion about ways to get staff to use wikis
– difference between a wiki and an Intranet?
-What libraries do and don’t use the Intranet .
-Advantages and disadvantages of having the wiki hosted on a different server to putting in on the library server and having more control
-Ownership of the wiki
-Problems that may have to be overcome with council or IT restrictions
-Setting up with an aim in mind rather than just for the sake of having a wiki because it's in vogue

Session ended with possible uses for a wiki in the library environment
-strategic planning
-staff communication
-community interaction
